Fabien Alain Barthez is a French former footballer and racing driver who played as a goalkeeper. At club level, he played football in both France and England with Toulouse, Marseille, AS Monaco, Manchester United, and Nantes.
One of the positions with the most responsibility in a game. The goalkeeper’s main job is to prevent the ball going into the net, using whatever part of their body they wish. The goalkeeper is the only player who is allowed to handle the ball during open play. However, as the goalkeeper cannot handle a ball that has been passed back to them by a teammate, this puts greater emphasis on the kicking abilities of keepers.
